Not a terribly impressive week for the NBA algorithm. We went 31/53, equating to 58% accuracy. New predictions are up — lots of predicted upsets this week, including two tonight. As usual, I’ve found checking the dashboard to be a great way to gain insight into such picks. Details of past week by point spread below.
